*** Application deadline: Monday, June 3rd, 2013 ***
Detailed description: http://www.par.tuwien.ac.at/positions/fwf13postphd.txt

For a new, 3-year research project to commence in Summer/Autumn 2013,
funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), the Research Group for
Parallel Computing at the Institute of Information Systems, Faculty of
Informatics, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) is offering

* A fully funded, 40 hour/week Postdoc position (40 hours)
* Two 30 hour/week PhD positions

for research, tool development, and extensive hypothesis
testing/benchmarking within a new project on "Verifying
Self-consistent MPI performance guidelines". The project aims at
formulating rules that can guide the quality and performance
portability of MPI (Message-Passing Interface) implementations
(possibly extending the ideas towards other parallel languages,
interfaces and libraries), and develop means to automatically verify
and detect violations to such rules. Important aspects of the project
are rule-directed benchmarking, computer system modeling,
communication algorithms, automated, rule-based (statistical) result
analysis, and include analysis and development of statistically
well-founded, fast, accurate, comprehensive and extensible
(customizable) benchmarking procedures for MPI. The project can build
on previous work in the MPI community, and is expected to
significantly extend on, broaden and substantiate such results.
A detailed project description, that will be the starting point for
the research, will be available to candidates considered for the positions.
